Back to the Drawing Board: The Future of the Pro-Life Movement Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Wagner, formerly a National Right to Life Committee lobbyist and legislative analyst for the Family Research Council, cites the recent Supreme Court decision to allow "partial-birth abortions" as a case illustrating that the right-to-life movement has not been winning its fight against Roe v Wade (1973).
